Eat Drink Sunderland, which showcases some of the best bars, cafés and restaurants that the city has to offer, will soon be on businesses’ coffee tables and in hotel rooms across Sunderland.  A sister-publication of Vibe Magazine, Eat Drink Sunderland is a 36-page magazine, and there are also 20,000 copies of an A6 foldout guide being distributed throughout the city, that will help guide hungry visitors to the perfect place to fill up.

For those who do not get their hands on a printed copy, an online version of the fold out guide is available at www.sunderlandvibe.co.uk with a downloadable city centre map to guide them through the places they may want to sample.

Gary Hutchinson, chair of Sunderland Business Partnership, said that the guide was a fantastic way of capturing the area’s growing collection of eateries.

He said: “Sunderland is packed with places to grab a bite to eat, have a great meal or enjoy a drink, and with more and more great places coming on board, we wanted to draw attention to the varied, and delicious options on offer.

“The foldout version of the guide in particular is something people can slip in their pocket or bag and use to direct them around the streets of Sunderland, picking out the food of their choice and finding a place to go, especially as the city has so many hidden gems.  It’s particularly good for visitors – and of course, with the city’s growing events programme and with more and more great hotels in the city to service people who are coming to the city for a day or even weekend trips, these will become something that will add real value to the city.”

Partners including Sunderland AFC, Sunderland Business Improvement District (BID), Sunderland City Council, Sunderland College, the Bridges Shopping Centre and the University of Sunderland have teamed up to make the guide possible, and will be sharing it to shine a light on all that the city has to offer.  The Sunderland Echo has also supported with the project with the print of the magazine version of the guide.

Gary added: “Partnership working is allowing us to make more of the great assets we have in Sunderland, and through producing guides like this, we can start to show off what we have to offer, and bring more people into our great city.”
